"OLD TIMES" 

THE OLD BOY'S SUPPLEMENT OF 

THE COLLEGE TIMES 



Founded By 
The Late John Ross Robertson, 1857 



Much unnecessary work and many misunderstandings could be avoided if Old 
Boys would inform the office of changes of address. 

This magazine is only what Old Boys make it, by supplying news of them- 
selves or others and articles or letters. 



This issue went to press in November.

ever and though the business to be 
transacted was rather formal i t 
seemed to be of interest and the ev- 
ening, ending with refreshments, 
seemed to be enjoyed. 

Before adjournment a presentation 
was made to the retiring president, 
accompanied by the following words 
of Wybourne Eastmure: 

Reward of a thing well done is 
to have done it. I am quite sure 
that our retiring President must 
take a good deal of satisfaction in 
the results of his two year tenure 
of office. 

Dr. Sowby would be the first to 
admit that a virile Old Boys' Asso- 
ciation is a most valuable acquisi- 
tion in the life of any College and it 
must be our constant concern to 



give him the kind of support he de- 
serves. Mr. Dennehy has been un- 
tiring in his efforts to strengthen 
the Old Boys' Association. During 
his term the very efficient office 
with a permanent secretariat has 
been installed — a dream of all past 
Presidents; an Investment Commit- 
tee to handle the investment of our 
funds is functioning satisfactorily 
and many other innovations have 
been introduced, all accruing to a 
more efficient service. 

Without establishing a precedent 
your Executive wish to recognize 
Mr. Dennehy's contribution in some 
tangible form and I have much pleas- 
ure in presenting him, on your be- 
half, with this token of our appre- 
ciation and esteem. 



FROM THE PRESIDENT'S REPORT 



In making the President's Annual 
Report at this, our 61st. Annual 
Meeting, it is with a touch of sad- 
ness that I realize this is my fair- 
well address. For two years now 
I have had the honour and pleasure 
of acting as your President, and I 
can assure you that the Association 
and the Directors you appointed 
have made my task a simple one. 
Thanks to these Directors I am now 
able to turn over to the incoming 
President, a strong and smoothly- 
running organization on a sound fi- 
nancial basis. 

The Association was founded not 
only to maintain the comradeship of 
school days, but for the protection 
and advancement of the school it- 
self. Indeed it can be truly said 
that had it not been for a mass meet- 
ing of the Old Boys held in 1887, 



under the presidency of the then 
Chief Justice of Ontario, The Hon- 
ourable Sir Matthew Crooks Camer- 
on, the school might not have sur- 
vived, in which case Canada as a 
whole would have been the loser. 
From 1891 to 1895 the fate of Upper 
Canada College was again uncertain, 
and Old Boys through the Associa- 
tion rallied to her side. I only men- 
tion these facts as I feel it is most 
necessary that we should not loose 
sight of the fact that we are an 
important Association, with four re- 
presentatives on the Board of Gover- 
nors holding the welfare and future 
of the College in our hands. 

To give you some idea of the keen 
interest in the Association at the 
present time, in the recent election 
to the Board of Governors of our 
three representatives, 517 ballots 



(2) 



were cast as against 150-200 in the 
past. 

Another indication of the growing 
interest in the Association is the 
sale of Old Boys' Ties. We sold 3(5 
dozen new Old Boys' Ties in ap- 
proximately two months. A repeat 
order has not arrived and is already 
selling well. 

Through Harold Roberts the As- 
sociation has been able to obtain 
jobs for approximately 1,500 Old 
Boys. For this good work we are 
very grateful to Harold, whose ef- 
forts on behalf of the school, Asso- 
ciation and Foundation are untiring. 
This is public relations at its best, 
and I am sure boys who have bene- 
fited from this help are among the 
first to donate to the foundation. 

The new Memorial Infirmary 
Building, which so many of you 
helped to build, is now completed, 
and it is hoped that the new build- 
ing for the Prep will shortly get 
under way. I am later going to ask 
Mr. J. M. Macintosh, Vice-Chairman 
of the Board of Governors, and 
Chairman of the Upper Canada Col- 
lege Foundation, to tell us of his 
committee's plans and hopes. 

In the past, gifts came largely 



from a few wealthy donors. During 
the first half of the century, Old 
Boys and friends of the College gave 
over $9,000,000.00. Owing to changes 
in the structure of taxation, the Col- 
lege can no longer depend on the 
few. It must turn to the many for 
assistance to meet present and fut- 
ure needs. I know that every mem- 
ber of the Old Boys' Association is 
keenly interested in the Foundation 
being a success. Just giving is not 
sufficient. Let each and everyone 
of us help make the Foundation and 
its aims known to others. 

Canada demands more varied ser- 
vice than ever before. Upper Can- 
ada College must stand in the fore- 
front, as she has done in the past. 
She must teach her boys to make the 
service of their country their high- 
est aim. She must maintain her old 
standard of manliness, sportsman- 
ship and intellectual distinction. She 
must be fruitful in educational ex- 
perience. She must bring to the 
services of Canada, the best teach- 
ers; whether native born or men 
with British culture and reputation, 
such as our present much esteemed 
Principal. Fees alone will not do 
this, but the backing of the Founda- 
tion by this Association will.

AUDITOR'S CERTIFICATE 

I have examined the accounts of the Upper Canada College Old Boys' 
Association for the year ended 30th September 1952. I certify that in my 
opinion the statements of Life Membership and General Funds correctly set 
out the financial position of these two funds as at 30th September, 1952 
and the transactions for the year then ended.

(6) 



they come in as boarders (which is 
the hope of the Principal and Head- 
master) will require grants from the 
Chest. There is also, unfortunately, 
no guarantee that Korea or other 
areas will not produce another crop 
of possible claimants for assistance. 

Thus it will be seen that there is 
a continuing need for the War Chest. 

With this meeting the present 
Committee is ceasing to function, but 
it has taken upon itself the respon- 
sibility of making the following re- 
commendations: 

1. That a new Committee be form- 
ed, composed of the Principal and 
the Headmaster of the Preparatory 
School, representing the boys at the 
College — two members appointed by 
the Governors, but not necessarily 
members of the Board of Governors 
— two members appointed by the 
Old Boys' Association, not necess- 
arily Directors of the Association, 
and the Bursar or his representative. 
This Committee to elect its own 
Chairman, and the Secretary of the 
Old Boys' Association to be Secre- 
tary of the Committee but not a 
member thereof. 

2. The Committee shall report 
annually to the Association at its 
Annual Meeting and to the Board of 
Governors at their next meeting 
thereafter, and to the boys at the 
Upper and Lower Schools at a time 
convenient to the Principal and 
Headmaster respectively. 

3. That the Fund continue to be 
known as the Upper Canada College 
War Chest Committee Fund. This 
is a cumbersome title, but is the 
name by which it was registered un- 
der the War Charities Act, and it is 
thought proper that it should not be 
changed. 



4. That the funds be handled by 
the Bursar in conection with other 
College Funds, but that it must not 
lose its identity. 

5. That the fiscal year be the 
same as the College year, namely the 
year ending June 30th, in each year. 

6. That grants be made by a ma- 
jority vote of the Committee upon a 
recommendation from the Principal 
or the Headmaster of the Prep pro- 
vided that the other of those two 
must be in favour of the grant. 

7. That at present grants be re- 
stricted to assist the sons of Old 
Boys who were killed or incapacitat- 
ed on Active Service. 

There is a strong hope amongst 
some members of the outgoing Com- 
mittee that someday the Fund may 
be strong enough to make it possible 
to entertain applications for grants 
to worthy sons of Old Boys who may 
not qualify under Recommendation 
No. 7. 

I am pleased to extend my best 
thanks to all the members of the 
Committee of which I have been 
Chairman since 1944. They have 
supported me at all times with co- 
operation and advice. On their be- 
half I now extend thanks also to all 
those who have assisted in raising 
funds for the War Chest. Especial- 
ly I would mention Mr. McKenzie 
and Dr. Sowby for assistance with 
the annual collections in the Upper 
School and Mr. Stephen for helping 
similarly at the Prep., Mr. Law for 
his Pound and Mr. Foster Hewitt 
and his various "Hockey Night" Com- 
mittees, without whose enthusiastic 
support the labours of the Committee 
would have been very much more 
onerous. 

Respectfully submitted, 
G. N. Hargraft — Chairman.

THE CRICKET MATCHES 



This year the Old Boys fielded two 
teams to play the boys on the tra- 
ditional 24th of May, and both teams 
were complete. But it rained and

make a start in the morning, after 
lunch play was abandoned. 
Scores were:

Doug Orr 2 

Bud Porter 2 

Ken Turnbull 8 

Jack Boeckh 

Robin Logie 32

John Speakman . 
Ken Drummond

The excellent turn-out was the re- 
sult of the efforts of our enthusias- 
tic new cricket committee of "Peter" 
Cox, Doug Orr, Joe Wright and Ken 
Turnbull. Those wishing to play 
this coming May can get in touch 
with W. D. "Peter" Cox at 44 Vic- 
toria St. (EM 6-4495) or 15 Poplar 
Plains Cres. (RA 0035).

Since last issue the Principal has 
made journeys to Barrie, Midland, 
Orillia, Sarnia and Quebec where he 
has met many Old Boys. Donald 
Wormith arranged a meeting for 
him in Sarnia and in Quebec he met 
75% of the Old Boys, three in 



number ! 

Those whose names appear with 
the Liaison Committee on the list of 
Officers and Directors for the com-

other been helpful to the Associa- 
tion and the College.

FROM LONDON. ENGLAND 



Peter Bennett has been the mov- 
ing presence in the current attempt 
to refound our O.B.A. Branch over 
here. Some months ago he sent out 
131 circulars to those thought to be 
living in Great Britain, according to 
a list supplied by the O.B.A. An 
even 60 replies were received, 62 
were not answered, and 9 dead let- 
ters came back. 

As the memory of schooldays in- 
evitably recedes so do the links with 
Canada slacken, especially as so 
many are bound to find themselves 
denied the opportunity to return to 
Canada, when the links might be re- 
newed on a visit. Unlike Canadians, 
who are able to and who do come 
over here each Summer without cur- 
rency barriers, our pleasure travel 
is rigorously confined to sterling 
countries. 

About the 60 affirmative returns 
Peter Bennett hopes to form a 



Branch and to draw a Committee 
from those who live in or close to 
London, a Committee which might 
deal in turn with fund raising, an 
annual Dinner, membership and as- 
sociate activities. 

The Canadian colony in Great Bri- 
tain is less cohesive, less permanent 
and smaller than the comparable col- 
onies from the other old Dominions, 
and as College lists show, the great 
majority of non-Toronto Old Boys 
live elsewhere in Canada or in the 
Americas, nor are there many boys 
now at the College whose homes are 
in the country, so that they might 
be likely to return here to live. 

Before the next issue of "Old 
Times", we hope to report progress. 
In addition to the more recent O.B.s, 
there are scattered in the country 
many earlier and eminent ones, who 
might be glad to be reminded of 
their old school and whose interest 
it is hoped to enlist. 



FROM VANCOUVER 



Following Dr. Sowby's visit to 
Vancouver early this year a tempor- 
ary executive committee, headed by 
Vic Spencer and including Pete 
Buckley and John Rook, was formed 
to assist in organizing a Vancouver 
and B. C. Mainland branch of the 
U.C.C. Old Boys Assoc. 

Several meetings of the executive 
have been held with the object of 
securing names and addresses of 
Old Boys in the area, planning the 
agenda for business and social meet- 
ings, and of enlisting the aid and co- 
operation of the head office of the 
Old Boys Association at the College. 
At this point we would like to ex- 
press our thanks for the help, finan- 



cial and otherwise, which the Old 
Boys Association has most willingly 
extended to us. 

We now have a list of 107 Old Boys 
who originally came from B.C. or 
are now residing here. There are, 
however, a few addresses missing, 
and the Old Boys Association would 
appreciate hearing from any Old Boy 
knowing the addresses of the follow- 
ing: D. W. Elliott ( , 99- , 02), M. Marks 
('23-'29), Henry McDonnell Ridley 
('24-'29). 

On August 2nd an afternoon gar- 
den party was held at the home of 
Mr. and Mrs. F. Ronald Graham in 
honour of Dr. and Mrs. Sowby and 
family who were holidaying briefly 



(10) 



in Vancouver. There was a large 
turnout of Old Boys and their wives 
and we were happy to see many 
friends and classmates after an in- 
terval of years. 

The occasion was favoured with 
one of Vancouver's best clear sum- 
mer days which helped to show off 
the exceptionally fine lawns and 
gardens, and this, combined with the 
graciousness of our host and hostess, 
resulted in the most successful ga- 
thering of Old Boys to date in this 
area. 

A few personal notes of interest — 
Vic Spencer ('38-' 43) was married 
in Toronto, to Margaret Airth, and 
has been presented with a daughter, 
Janice Elvin. Vic, formerly with 
Eaton's in Vancouver, is now vice- 
president of Gordon & Belyea Ltd. 

Ed Kemble ( , 22- , 23) is manager of 
the insurance department of the 
Yorkshire Corporation Ltd., Van- 
couver. John Rook C38-'42) mar- 
ried on June 24, 1952, to Beverly 
Smithson, in Vancouver, is now with 
Yorshire Securities Ltd. after three 
years with the Industrial Develop- 
ment Bank in Montreal and Van- 
couver. Dave Barr ('40-'46) is a 
field engineer with Kennco Explora- 
tions Canada Ltd., with headquart- 
ers in Vancouver. 

Mike Bremner ('35-'42), in Van- 
couver for a year, was recently trans- 
ferred to Port Arthur as sales man- 
ager for Canadian Copco. Mrs. 
Bremner and their son and daughter 
will soon follow to that city. Tom 
Hull C33-'39) is a professor of phy- 
sics at U.B.C. and is currently fin- 
ishing his new self-designed home 
near the campus. Pete Buckley ('36- 
*40) is a buyer and department man- 
ager at the Hudson's Bay Store in 
Vancouver. Harry Lambe ('20-'27) 



moved out to Vancouver two years 
ago for B. A. Oil. 

Geoff Andrew, formerly English 
master at the College is now a pro- 
fessor of English at U.B.C. Pete 
Morine ('35-'41) is now divisional 
sales manager for International 
Business Machines. Pete and Peggy 
have a son and daughter. Bob Mc- 
Coll C39-'40) is with the law firm 
of Lawson, Lundell, Lawson and Mc- 
intosh, Vancouver. 

As the B.C. branch is in its early 
stages of organization and as yet 
has incomplete records, we would be 
interested in receiving news of any 
Old Boys residing in B.C. Naturally 
we on the west coast wish to welcome 
all Old Boys visiting or moving to 
this Province and invite them to con- 
tact any of the following: 

Victor V. Spencer 
(president) 

% Gordon & Belyea Limited, 
101 Powell Street, 
Vancouver 4, B. C. 

Peter Buckley 608 Stanley Street, 
(vice president) Burnaby, B.C. 

John W. Rook 
(secretary) 

% Yorkshire Securities Ltd., 

900 West Pender Street. 

Vancouver, B. C. 

The Association is planning sev- 
eral combination social and business 
meetings this fall and we hope to in- 
clude some movies of the College la- 
ter in the season. In the meantime 
we shall continue to gather news of 
our Old Boys in the Province and 
forward the information to the Old 
Boys Association headquarters at 
the College.

TGI II OF THE WEST 



Harold A. Roberts ('09-'15) is 
planning to visit Old Boys in the 
West as far as Victoria. To inform 
any who do not know him, he was 
twenty-three years Secretary of the 
Association, for two years its Presi- 
dent, and for eighteen years an elect- 
ed representative to the Board of 
Governors. 

He plans to arrive in Victoria on 
February 8th. and will be there until 
February 11th. If a meeting of Old 
Boys could be arranged on the 9th. 
it would then give him an opportun- 
ity on the 10th. and 11th. of calling 
on those who are unable to attend. 

He will be in Vancouver from the 



12th. to the 16th. Our dinner at 
Toronto will be on Friday, February 
13th. and we hope that a gathering 
if possible will be held on the same 
day in Vancouver. 

The next stop will be Calgary from 
the evening of the 16th. until the 
19th. Here we hope that the gather- 
ing, if possible, may be on the 17th. 

His time in Edmonton will be from 
February 20th. to the 23rd. and we 
hope the meeting may be on the 20th. 
if possible. 

Winnipeg, which will be the final 
stop, will take from the 25th. to the 
28th. and here the 25th. would seem 
the best date for a gathering.

SPEAKER AT U.C.C.— ROBERTSON DAVIES ('28-'32) 



FROM THE PRINCIPAL 



We are now using the Memorial 
Dining Hall every day and the In- 
firmary when necessary. There has 
been already a steady procession 
through the latter during the foot- 
ball season, but nothing of a serious 
nature. It is a magnificent build- 
ing, worthy of the men in whose me- 
mory it was built. I hope to be able 
to show it to you when you are able 



to come to see us. I am confident 
that you will like it. 

I want to send a special message 
to all old boys, serving in Europe and 
the Far East. We never forget them 
but always remember them, particu- 
larly at prayers on Sunday nights. 



With best wishes.

COLLEGE CHRONICLE 



HOCKEY - 1951-52 

When we last went to press the 
Midget Hockey team had won its 
group easily. In the semi-finals of 
the city championships they were 
finally defeated 1-2, 2-2, 5-1, 1-2, by 
Maroons, who thereafter easily won 
the finals of the championship. 

SQUASH 

In the Little Big Four Tournament 
which St. Andrew's entered for the 
first time we ranked third. 

PREP BOXING 

John Ireton won the Clarkson Cup 
as the best boxer in the Prep. Garth 
Thompson was the heavyweight win- 
ner. 



JUBILEE 

The events, of which Old Boys 
were fully informed, to celebrate the 
Prep's Golden Jubilee, all went off 
according to plan. "The Masque of 
Aesop" in the old gymn, the concert 
and the service in the Prayer Hall 
were well performed and well at- 
tended. Fair weather favoured both 
the picnic at Norval, where Jubilee 
trees were planted, and Jubilee Day 
itself with its sports, garden party, 
dinner and fireworks. 

BATTALION 

The Battalion had a full year, in- 
cluding two church parades in one 
day for many of the boys. The in- 



(15) 



spection was made by Air Vice-Mar- 
shal Slemon. Awards were: 
The Q. 0. R. Sword to Alec McBain. 
The Royal Regt. Trophy to C Com- 
pany (Ian McLeod). 
The Platoon Shield to No. 7 (Peter 

Edmonson). 
The Binnie Trophy for the best pla- 
toon of new boys to No. 2 (Ro- 
bert Standing). 
Award for best marksman to John 

Mallett. 
N.C.O. Challenge Cup to Greg Irish- 
man. 
The Ambuhl Trophy for the best 
drummer to John Mitchell. 

TRACK 

At our own meet Peter Lindsay 
and Sheldon Hildebrand tied for the 
senior championship, the latter win- 
ning the Gzowski cup for sprints. 
Taylor Campbell won the intermedi- 
ate championship and Malcolm Fra- 
ser the junior. Peter Macdonald 
won the Watkins Cup for hurdles, 
Bill McMurtry the Magann Cup for 
the mile and Robert Creasy the Sixth 
Form Cup for jumps. 

At the U.C.C. Relays Pickering and 
St. Andrew's competed. We tied 
with St .Andrew's for first. 

A junior track team won a meet 
with Cosburn, East York, Bathurst 
Heights and Agincourt schools. 

In the Prep sports, held on Jubilee 
Day, Jim McMurtry won the Somer- 
ville Cup. The prizes were present- 
ed by Mrs. W. L. Grant. 

The senior steeple chase was won 
by Bill McMurtry, the intermediate 
by Peter Mason, the junior by Robert 
Johnson. 



CRICKET 

The first team, coached by Mr. 
Harrison with Robert Standing as 
captain, won three exhibition match- 
es and did creditably in the two 
others it lost, but won none of its 
matches against the other schools. It 
lost 68-87 to T.C.S., 73-80 to St. And- 
rew's, 79-115 to Ridley. Neverthe- 
less it really was a good team of 
which most players are returning to 
school to play again with a year's 
more experience and maturity. 

The second team, coached by Mr. 
Gallimore with David Williams cap- 
tain, defeated Ridley, broke even with 
St. Andrew's, lost twice to T.C.S. and 
once to Lakefield, and defeated 
Grace Church B. 

The Under 16 team, coached by 
Mr. Killip with Ed Deratnay as cap- 
tain, defeated St. Andrew's twice, 
Ridley, T.C.S., Hillfield, a team of 
the Toronto Cricket Club and our 
own second team! 

Seaton's won both house leagues. 

The Prep, coached by Mr. Howard, 
beat Ridley and lost to St. Andrew's 
and T.C.S. 



TENNIS 
The tennis tournament could not be 
finished this year because of holi- 
days for the Queen's birthday, Jubi- 
lee Day and other events. In the 
autumn the second annual Little Big 
Four Tennis Tournament was held 
at the Toronto Cricket Club. Our 
boys again came second to Ridley. 

AWARDS 

The Herbert Mason medals went 
to Greg Leishman and Bob Standing. 



(16) 



The senior reading competition 
was won by James Peddie, the junior 
by Blair Haviland ; the senior speak- 
ing by George Steiner, the junior by 
David Martin. 

The entrance scholarships were 
competed for by some 50 odd boys. 

They were awarded as follows: 
The Governors' Scholarship ($1,500 
a year) to J. H. Matthews, Keno- 
gami Protestant High School, P.Q. 
The Emily Jane Eby Memorial ($1,000 
a year) to D. P. Warren, Hillfield 
School, Hamilton. 
Wm. Caven Merritt Knowlson Mem- 
orial ($750 a year) to P. D. Gouls- 
ton, Lake Road School, Sarnia. 
The Woods and Old Boys' Memorial 
($900 a year) to D. E. Webber, 
Garneau Public School, Edmonton. 



The leaving class presented a 
painting to the College. 

SUMMER 

During the summer Mr. Davidson 
and Mr. Stanley took another party 
of 22 boys to the Rockies, while some 
others of the staff were travelling 
as far afield as Spain and Finland.

and Rod Laidlaw ('31-'40) 



STAFF 

In June Mr. Gordon left to become 
headmaster of St. John's Ravencourt, 
Dr. Ward to join the staff of Wy- 
cliffe, Mr. Agnew to join the Board 
of Education at Cornwall, Ontario. 
Mr. Sparks had already left to rejoin 
the Navy. Mr. Gordon had been here 
two years, the others less than one 
each. 

Mr. J. T. Ainslie, M.A. (Pembroke, 
Cambridge) whose war service in- 
cluded action with the parachute reg- 
iment at Arnhem, has come from 
Glasgow Academy to teach Moderns. 
Mr. Lawrence comes from Bishop's 
College to teach English. 

Mr. Ordonnez left the Prep's Staff 
to teach at St. Paul's in U.S.A. and 
Mr. John B. Finlay has come from 
Victoria College and Mr. M. P. Mac- 
Innes from Balliol, Oxford. 

RUGBY 

The first team, coached again by 
Mr. Stanley, with Peter Lindsay for 
captain and Doug Skelton as Vice- 
captain, won its three exhibition 
games against Forest Hill (4-0), De 
La Salle (17-0) and Pickering (25-0.) 

Its only home game was against 
T.C.S. which it won 8-6. The game 
was close and the skill of T.C.S. at 
forward passing made it exciting but 
our defense and end runs earned us 
the victory. 

The next week they lost a good 
game to Ridley 0-11. 

In the last game they beat St. And- 
rew's 11-6. 

The Little Big Four ended in a fa- 
miliar pattern : Ridley champions on 
top, U.C.C. next, T.C.S. next, St. And- 
rew's last. 



(17) 



In a post-season game they lost 
to U.T.S. 1-12. 

The second team, coached by Mr. 
Brennan with John Goodwin captain, 
beat T.C.S. but lost twice to Appleby 
and once each to Ridley, Pickering 
and Lakefield. 

The 16 year old team, coached by 
Mr. Galloway with Terry Belsham 
captain, beat T.C.S. twice, lost to 
Lawrence Park and Malvern once 
each and twice to De La Salle. 

The 15 year old team, coached by 
Mr. Sharp with Brook Ellis captain, 
broke even with St. Andrew's sec- 
onds, and with Hillfield, defeated 
Pickering seconds twice, and lost 
once to each of T.C.S. middle side, 
Etobicoke 15 year old team, Ridley 
B. squad and North Toronto Juniors. 

The 14 year old team, coached by 
Mr. Gilham with Garth Thompson, 
captain, broke even with Cosburn 
H.S., Ridley, S.A.C. and Runnymede, 
lost to T.C.S. twice, beat Appleby 
once and lost once to York Memorial. 

Mowbray's won the senior house 
league, McHugh's the junior. 

This year five school teams played 
instead of four with the result that 
the house teams were of 7 or 8 play- 
ers each.

FROM SOUTH AFRICA 



I enclose a cheque for $28 being" 
part payment for Life Membership 
of the Old Boys' Association. I see 
that I am $2 short. I hope that in 
the next year or so I shall be able 
to pay the balance in person. 

I should also like to express my 
appreciation for the "Old Times" I 
received and for the many circulars 
etc. Also a much appreciated Xmas 
card. 

At present I am "swotting" for my 
final B.Sc. exams in November. I 
have majored in Geology and am 
thinking very seriously of returning 
to Canada next year. My address 
still remains the same — 25 Marina 
Court, Soper Road, Berea, Johannes- 
burg, S. A. I have no marriages, 
births etc. to report. However I 
heard a talk on the Radio the other 
night given by Mr. MacDermot, who 
is at present Canadian High Com- 
missioner in this country, on Can- 
adian life. 

I am always bumping into Cana- 
dians out here, and the conversation 



usually always turns to Upper Can- 
ada. 

In the sporting line, I have played 
a couple of games of ice hockey 
(there is a rink in Johannesburg), 
however only in summer as it's too 
cold in winter to attract the specta- 
tors. I have represented the Uni- 
versity swimming team and squash 
team for the last couple of years and 
this year I played in the South Afri- 
can squash championships and man- 
aged to reach the semi-finals. 

South Africa is a great place. How- 
ever it is at present in very bad 
odour in the eyes of the rest of the 
World and I do feel that the prob- 
lems of black and white out here 
need to be seen from the inside and 
not from the outside to be really 
appreciated. 

I have seen a good bit of this 
country since I left Canada, includ- 
ing working underground in the new 
Orange Free State goldfields during 
one of my vacs, and am very keen 
to see a bit of the world next year.

THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS 



It is perhaps a truism that the 
loyal and active support of its Old 
Boys is a vital element in the life 
of such a foundation as Upper Can- 
ada College. In the first half-cent- 
ury of its life when it was under 
the governance first of the General 
Board of Education, then of the 
Council of King's College and of its 
successor, the Senate of the Univer- 
sity of Toronto, and when the en- 
dowment of some 66,000 acres of 
land originally granted it by the 
Crown and confirmed by the Legis- 
lature of the province was unim- 
paired, such a need was not so great 
at U.C.C. But in the seventies when 
the forces of jealousy and class pre- 
judice became so strong as to threat- 
en the College not only with the spoli- 
ation of its endowment but even with 
its abolition, its adversaries were 
dumfounded by the phalanx of Old 
Boys which arose to do battle for it. 

It was then that the idea of an 
Old Boys' Association had its gene- 
sis. A meeting held on February 3, 
1882, under the Chairmanship of W. 
T. Boyd, decided to form such an as- 
sociation, which should establish 
branches in various centres through- 
out the province, and organize such 
a strong body of College protagon- 
ists as would deter the Legislature 
from giving ear to the proposals of 
its foes. However, as the agitation 
against the College died down under 
the regime of Principal Buchan, 
these plans did not come to fulfil- 
ment. 

The renewal of this agitation 
shortly after the death of Principal 
Buchan moved the Old Boys once 



again to come to its defence. A 
great mass meeting held in 1887 un- 
der the Chairmanship of Sir Matthew 
Crooks Cameron proved influential 
enough to induce the government to 
insist upon the continuance of the 
College, although they were unable 
to prevent the major part of its en- 
dowment from being confiscated and 
handed over to the University. From 
that time on the College has had to 
look more and more to its Old Boys 
for support. Fortunately it has not 
looked in vain. 

Principal Dickson, during whose 
regime the College was moved to its 
present site was keenly alive to this 
necessity, and it was assuredly with 
his blessing that the Old Boys' As- 
sociation was finally organized in 
the year 1891. 

In 1887 the government of the Col- 
lege was removed from the over-lord- 
ship of the University Senate and 
placed under a Board of Trustees. 
But as the real power was vested in 
the Minister of Education this prov- 
ed no ideal arrangement. It was not 
until 1901 that the last vestiges of 
government control vanished and the 
College was placed under the Board 
of Governors as at present consti- 
tuted. 

That is perhaps a rather long pre- 
amble to the subject of this article. 
The recent election by the Old Boys' 
Association of three representa- 
tives to the Board of Governors in- 
spired me to examine its representa- 
tion on the Governing Body from the 
time of the formation of the Board 
of Trustees until the present, and I 
was so impressed by the calibre of its 



(27) 



representatives that I felt a brief 
synopsis might be of interest to the 
readers of the "Old Times". It 
seemed inadequate without a brief 
review of the connection of the Old 
Boys with the College. 

Although the College was placed 
under a Board of Trustees in 1887, 
it was not until 1894 that provision 
was made for representation of the 
Old Boys on this Board. An amend- 
ment to the constitution in that year 
made provision for four such repre- 
sentatives. 

The first so elected was Mr. W. 
H. Beatty who had been at the Col- 
lege from 1842-45. He entered the 
profession of Law as a member of 
the Firm of Beatty, Blackstock, Tas- 
ker, & Riddell. But far from limit- 
ing his activities to his own business 
he had wide interests in the life of 
the community at large. He was a 
charter member of the firm of Good- 
erham and Worts, and at varying 
periods President of the Bank of Tor- 
onto, the Confederation Life Associa- 
tion, the Toronto Silver Plate Co., 
and the Canada Permanent Mortgage 
Corporation, Vice-President Toronto 
General Trusts Corporation and the 
London and Ontario Investment Co. 
But inspite of these manifold inter- 
ests he still found time to devote to 
the interests of his old school and 
was one of the many who attended 
the monster rally in 1887. Though 
he held his position on the Board of 
Trustees for but part of a year his 
interest in the College never flagged 
and as President of the Old Boys' 
Association from 1892 to 1907 he was 
ex officio a member of the reconsti- 
tuted Board of Governors from 1901 



to 1907. His death in 1912 removed 
a staunch friend of the College. 

Mr. W. T. Boyd, who took Mr. 
Beatty's place on the Board in 1894 
was also a lawyer. He was Chair- 
man of the meeting held in 1882 when 
the idea of an Old Boys' Association 
was first mooted. He was one of 
your representatives on the Board 
from 1894-1897 and again from 1900- 
1904. 

The other representatives elected 
in 1894 were W. J. McMaster, W. G. 
Gooderham, and J. K. MacDonald. 

A merchant in Toronto and later 
in Vancouver, Mr. McMaster was a 
charter member and the first secre- 
tary of the O.B.A., but retained his 
position on the Board for but part 
of the year. 

His place was taken by John Stra- 
thearn Hendrie whose career was so 
colorful that some of its highlights 
must be mentioned although he in 
turn relinquished his place on the 
Board to Mr. Frank Arnoldi before 
the year was out. 

Mr. Hendrie, a native of Hamilton, 
was a railway contractor in both 
Canada and the United States. As 
commander of the Artillery Contin- 
gent from this country he attended 
Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 
1897. On his return, entering muni- 
cipal life in Hamilton, he was elect- 
ed major of his native city in 1901 
and 1902. Thence it was but a short 
step to provincial politics and we 
find him sitting as M.P.P. for Hamil- 
ton from 1902-1914. During the last 
nine of these years he was minister 
without portfolio in the Whitney 
Government. In 1907 he was made 
C.V.R.O. by Edward VII and in 1915 



(28) 



K.C.M.G. by George V. In 1914 he 
was appointed Lieutenant-Governor 
of Ontario and filled the position 
with distinction. Throughout his 
busy life until his death in 1923 he 
maintained his interest in and af- 
fection for his old school. 

In a short article it is manifestly 
impossible to dwell at length on the 
achievements of all who have rep- 
resented the Association on the Gov- 
erning Body of the College. The 
following list gives their names, 
their years as boys at the College, 
and the years when they were your 
official spokesmen on the Board.

Mr. Frank Arnoldi, on the Board 

continuously from 1894 till 1933 was 
a member of the Ontario Bar. He 
was President of the Royal Canadian 
Institute from 1913 to 1915, and for 



many years was the solicitor for the 
Board. He had much to do with the 
purchase of the property at Norval 
which the College still owns and was 
an ardent supporter of the proposal 
to move the College to that site. 

One of the school's greatest bene- 
factors was Mr. W. G. Gooderham 
elected in 1894. Though he was your 
elected representative for only one 
year he was appointed to the Board 
again by the Lieutenant-Governor in 
Council in 1901 and served continu- 
ously from then until 1935. For 
twenty-two years, 1912-34, he was its 
Chairman. President of Gooderham 
and Worts, of the Manufacturers' 
Life Insurance Co., the Canada Per- 
manent Mortgage Corporation, First 
Vice-President Bank of Toronto, 
President U.C.C. Old Boys' Associa- 
tion, Vice-President Toronto & York 
County Patriotic Fund Association, 
he nevertheless devoted much time 
to the affairs of the College. As he 
disliked any parade of good deeds, 
most of his benefactions to the Col- 
lege were made under the cloak of 
anonymity. The Parkin Building 
and Grant House are the result of 
his energetic interest and, to a great 
extent, of his generosity. He resign- 
ed his position on the Board shortly 
before his death in 1935. 

Another colourful figure of the 
nineties and the early years of this 
century was John K. MacDonald. He 
is perhaps best known as President 
of John MacDonald & Co., Wholesale 
Dry Goods. But he had wide inter- 
ests outside the business of this 
Firm. He served as a Justice of the 
Peace, Director of the Bank of Tor- 
onto, Confederation Life Association, 
Toronto Hotel Co., Guarantee Co. of 



(29) 



North America, Millers' and Manu- 
facturers' Insurance Co., Humane 
Society, Hospital for Incurables, 
Academy of Music, was an Hon. 
Governor of Toronto General Hospi- 
tal, and Chairman of the Bureau of 
Municipal Research. His home was 
on Avenue Road, north of St. Clair, 
and his splendid carriage was a well 
known sight in the vicinity of the 
college. 

J. T. Small was another barrister 
whose wide interests and experience 
made him a valuable member of the 
Board. He served as Hon. Treas- 
urer of the British Empire League 
1896-, Hon. Secretary for Canada 
of the Royal Colonial Institute, Presi- 
dent County York Law Association 
and Toronto Bar Association 1912-13, 
and Hon. Solicitor for the Canadian 
Red Cross Society. He was one of 
the men instrumental in securing 
Dr. Parkin for the Principalship of 
the College. 

In 1901 the Board of Trustees was 
replaced by the Board of Governors 
as at present constituted. This was 
an entirely independent body accord- 
ing to whose constitution the Presi- 
dent of the O.B.A. is ex officio a 
member. In addition the Associa- 
tion elects three members to repre- 
sent it on the Board. The first re- 
presentatives on the new Body were 
Messrs. Frank Arnoldi, J. B. Hender- 
son, and W. T. Boyd, with W. H. 
Beatty ex officio a member as Presi- 
dent of the O.B.A. 

In 1904 Arnoldi and Henderson 
were again elected, while W. T. Boyd 
was replaced by Nicol Kingsmill. 
The last, a barrister, who had been 
made a Q.C. in 1889, in addition to 
conducting his practice served as a 



director of the Canadian Southern 
Railway and the T.H. & B. Railway, 
became consul for the Argentine Re- 
public in 1887, was paymaster 10th 
R.G. '82-'88 and at one time was Pre- 
sident of the Toronto Club. Keenly 
interested in the College he laboured 
diligently to further its interests. 

In 1909 Professor A. H. Young of 
the Staff of Trinity College replaced 
Mr. Henderson. Throughout prac- 
tically his whole life his association 
with the College was a very intimate 
one. It has been said of him that 
his two great loves were Trinity 
College and U.C.C., and he devoted 
himself unsparingly to the service of 
both. In his spare moments he de- 
voted some thought to T.C.S. where 
he was a member of the Corporation 
and Governing Body. Leaving the 
College as Head Boy in 1882, he re- 
turned in 1887 to the staff as Mod- 
ern Language Master. Though he 
left this post in 1892 to become Pro- 
fessor of German at Trinity College, 
he always kept in close touch with 
the school. He edited the College 
Roll of Pupils published in 1917 and 
the card index of Old Boys. The 
Principal frequently acknowledged 
his gratitude to him for his advice 
on educational matters. 

In 1912 W. N. Ponton, K.C. suc- 
ceeded Nicol Kingsmill and from 
then until 1933 Arnoldi, Ponton, and 
Young formed the triumvirate rep- 
resenting the Association on the 
Board. Ponton, a Belleville barris- 
ter, was Historian and Archivist of 
the Ontario Bar Association, Chair- 
man Belleville Board of Education, 
and a member of the Senate of the 
University of Toronto. He will be 
remembered by successive genera- 



(30) 



tions of boys at U.C.C. as the donor 
of the Ponton prizes for the College 
Times. 

After their long period of service 
these three men retired together in 
1933, and in their stead were elected 
Justice G. F. McFarland, Col. George 
Drew, and Harold A. D. Roberts. All 
three had a distinguished career 
in the first Great War in the In- 
fantry, Artillery, and Flying Corps 
respectively. 

Frank McFarland became a K.C. 
in 1928 and to crown a brilliant 
career at the Bar had been appoint- 
ed a Judge of the High Court of Jus- 
tice for Ontario in 1933, shortly be- 
fore he was elected to our own Board 
of Governors. For many years be- 
fore his death he presented the 
Gamecock Cup for the boxing tourn- 
ament and members of his family 
have continued this gift since his 
death in 1950. 

George Drew is still so prominent 
a figure in the public life of Canada 
that it is superfluous to dwell upon 
his achievements. Returning from 
overseas after being severely wound- 
ed, he began the practice of Law and 
combined with it increasing partici- 
pation in public affairs. After serv- 
ing as Mayor of Guelph he turned 
to provincial politics where he be- 
came leader of the Ontario Progres- 
sive Conservative Party, which he 
led to victory in the election of 1943. 
He served as premier of the prov- 
ince until 1948 when he was called 
to the leadership of the party in the 
federal field. 

Of Harold Roberts what shall be 
said? On this subject — to use the 
words of Cicero — it is more difficult 
to find an end than a beginning. His 



place is unique. From the moment 
he became Secretary of the Associa- 
tion in 1928 he breathed new life in- 
to it. In spite of the demands of 
his business in the Boiler Inspection 
and Insurance Co. of Canada, of 
whose Toronto Branch he later be- 
came manager, he seemed always to 
have a surplus store of energy which 
he spent unsparingly in the inter- 
ests of the Association and the Col- 
lege. Especially did he instill in 
the minds of the younger Old Boys 
the idea that they had a vital part 
to play in the life and work of the 
Association. Countless numbers of 
boys will remember him with affec- 
tion, and many with gratitude for 
his efforts in securing advantageous 
posts for them in the business world. 
Both as secretary and president of 
the Association he has done much to 
make it a living force in the life of 
the College. It was but natural, then, 
that the Association should turn to 
him to represent it on the Board of 
Governors. His subsequent election 
to the Executive Committee is an 
indication of the value the other 
members of the Board placed upon 
his qualities. Now he has retired 
both from the Board and his Insur- 
ance business to become the first 
director of the U.C.C. Foundation. 
We all wish him the greatest success 
and satisfaction in this new under- 
taking. 

George N. Hargraft, who replaced 
Justice McFarland in 1938, was a 
member of the firm of George R. Har- 
graft & Co., agents for the Commer- 
cial Union Assurance Co., and was 
also active in the work of St. Paul's 
Anglican Church. As Chairman of 
the War Chest Committee he rend- 



(31) 



ered a valuable service to the Col- 
lege, for this Fund is enabling sev- 
eral sons of Old Boys who lost their 
lives in the service of their country 
to obtain their education at the Col- 
lege. Though he ceased to be one 
of the three elected representatives 
in 1948, yet he remained a member 
of the Board for the next two years 
as President of the Association. 

A. Kelso Roberts, K.C., who re- 
placed Col. Drew is also well known 
in the political life of the province. 
For many years he has represented 
St. Patrick's riding in the Ontario 
Legislature and was one of the con- 
tenders for the provincial leadership 
at the 1949 convention of the Pro- 
gressive Conservative Party. He has 
the distinction of being the first per- 
son to travel by motor car with his 
family from White Horse to Toronto. 

When he retired from the Board 
in 1945 his place was filled by A. 
Wyburn Eastmure, better known to 
his friends as Wy. On being dis- 
charged at the close of the 1914-18 
war Wy returned to his Insurance 
business. At the present time he is 
Managing Director of the Casualty 
Co. of Canada. Active in Church 
work he served for five years as 
Warden at Christ Church, Deer Park. 
As president of the Board of the 
Children's Aid Society, he is render- 
ing valuable service in this philan- 
thropic work. His good judgement 
and wide experience made him also 
a valued member of the Executive 
Committee of the College Board. 

On Mr. Hargraft's retirement in 
1948 his place was taken by one 
whose name is known more widely 
than that of most across the whole 
Dominion. Foster Hewitt was a 



pioneer in the field of radio broad- 
casting and, in some respects cer- 
tainly, no one is yet his equal in his 
chosen field. Many would rather 
hear Foster's broadcast of a hockey 
game than see the game itself. We 
all wish him the best of luck with 
his new radio station CKFH. It is 
due to his enthusiasm and genius 
for organization that Old Boys' Hoc- 
key Night, which may be called his 
child, has become such a successful 
event in the College year. He is still 
on the Board and is slated to remain 
there at least until 1954. 

Last year Wy Eastmure and Har- 
old Roberts retired after many years 
of service, carrying with them the 
gratitude not only of the Association 
but also, we may be sure, of the 
Board. 

To replace them have come for- 
ward A. J. R. May and B. K. Sand- 
well. 

Jack May, a member of the Firm 
of A. S. May & Co. has for many 
years been the Association's repre- 
sentative on the Athletic Council of 
the College. He is one of the spon- 
sors of Squash Racquets at the Col- 
lege and has been greatly instrumen- 
tal in obtaining facilities for the Col- 
lege boys at the Badminton and Rac- 
quet Club. 

B. K. Sandwell has been so promi- 
nent a figure in the world of letters 
that he needs no introduction to any 
reader of these columns. He began 
his journalistic career as Editor of 
the College Times, and to prove that 
journalism was not the only sphere 
in which he shone, closed his career 
at the College by graduating as Head 
Boy in 1893. Following his Univer- 
sity Course he returned to journal- 



(32) 



ism as a member of the Editorial 
Staff first of the Toronto News and 
later of the Montreal Herald. In 
1923, forsaking his first love, he was 
wooed and won by Queen's Univer- 
sity, where he became Professor of 
English Literature. After nine years 
in a Professor's chair however, he 
returned once more to journalism, as 
Editor of Saturday Night. For 
twenty years now his pen has wield- 
ed a profound influence on all bran- 
ches of Canadian thought. 

The spoken word, too, flows as 
fluently from his lips as the written 
word from his pen, and a meeting 
which he is to address or a dinner at 
which he is to speak is certain to 
have no vacant chairs. 

In 1944 he succeeded the Earl of 
Athlone as Rector of Queen's Uni- 
versity. 



Now that he has laid aside the ar- 
duous task of editing Saturday Night 
we are pleased to see him returning 
to his old school as a member of its 
Governing Board, where we are sure 
his interest and advice will prove of 
great value. 

As stated earlier this article deals 
only with the Old Boys who have 
been chosen to represent the Old 
Boys' Association on the Board. 
Many others of her sons have ser- 
ved and are serving on the Board 
in other capacities. Of them all it 
may be said that, as long as U.C.C. 
has sons of such calibre willing to 
devote their time and energy to her 
interests, she may look forward to 
the future with confidence.

LITTLE BIG FOUR RELATIONS 



On the morning of the T.C. S. 
game, U.C.C. found its goalposts 
painted red and black; and on the 
morning St. Andrew's were to be vis- 
ited by U.C.C, its goalposts were blue 
and white. 

Apart from the curses of garden- 
ers who had to do the re-painting and 
the proper indignation of the head- 
masters, little emotion was felt. With 
boys of the schools the joke fell flat. 



Since the culprits may well have 
been recent Old Boys, the officers of 
the Old Boys' Association of the 
schools concerned hope that they 
may in future be saved the embar- 
rassment they have felt. 

The day its goalposts were paint- 
ed St. Andrew's entertained three 
U.C.C. teams at lunch and a host of 
U.C.C. supporters at tea.

A COLLEGE SONG 



Mr. W. E. Fleury (U.C.C. '20-'28> 
and Mr. E. R. Deeks (U.C.C. '21-'29) 
are offering as joint donors prizes 
to the value of $200.00 for the words 
and music of an Upper Canada Col- 
lege School Song — the prizes to be 
set up as follows: 

To the value of $20.00 for the best 
set of words from a Preparatory 
School Boy. 

To the value of $30.00 for the best 
set of words from an Upper 
School Boy. 

To the value of $75.00 for a Grand 
Prize for the best set of words 
from boys at present at U.C.C, 
from Old Boys and Staff. 

Songs already written are eligible 
for these prizes. 

After the Judges have chosen the 
best words, a separate contest will 
be held for the music. This would 
be open to all present boys, Old Boys, 
Staff and others by invitation. For 
this there would be a $75.00 prize. 



The contest for the words is to 
run from the opening of the Fall 
Term, 1952, to the middle of the 
Winter Term, 1953. The Music Con- 
test will run from the middle of the 
Winter Term, 1953, to the end of 
the Summer Term, 1953. The judg- 
ing is to be completed during the 
summer of 1953 and, if it can be 
arranged, prizes to be distributed at 
Prize Day in the Fall of 1953. 

The Prizes for this Contest will 
consist of a suitable Upper Canada 
College Prize Book with the balance 
available in credits at Britnell's or 
Heintzman's. 

The Judges will be Dr. Sowby and 
Mr. Stephen, with the right of fur- 
ther appointment in their hands. 

Contestants will bear in mind that 
the School Song must be easily "sing- 
able" and suitable for singing at all 
School occasions such as — Sports 
Day, Prize Day, Football Games, 
Hockey Games, Old Boys Reunions,

Robertson Davies ( , 28- , 32) gener- 
ously wrote a masque, which is a 
special Elizabethan form of drama, 
for the celebration of the Jubilee of 
the Prep. It was performed by Prep 
boys before an invited audience in 
the little gym. Davies presented the 
play to U.C.C. and Clarke-Irwin are 



to publish it, profits from the sale 
of the book and royalties from pro- 
duction of the play going to the Col- 
lege. Messrs. Atack and Dawson of 
the Prep Staff have with like gener- 
osity presented the revenue from the 
music which they composed for it.

FROM WESTERN ONTARIO 



It has taken me some time to feel 
only partially sure that many of the 
faces on Western's campus were not 
among the leaving class of my New- 
Boy year at Upper Canada. 

Though I am minus some import- 
ant facts I think we have a fairly 
complete list. Some of the older fel- 
lows in the list I have not yet met, 
so I have only their names here en- 
tered. 

But here goes. From the College's 
Leaving Class of 1950, we have Walt 
Diakiw in Arts, Bruce Waller in 
Business, Hugo Grout in Arts, Bruce 
McDougall, Tom Rundle and Tom 
Campbell in Arts, Lou Jordan in Sci- 
ence, and "Shorty" Thompson in 
Business. Bob Bazos has just en- 
rolled for post graduate work, com- 
ing from Toronto. 



In the graduating group of 1951 
there is representation in these parts 
by Tommy Thomas, Don Murphy and 
Al Nyman in first year pre-Meds, Bill 
Leak in Business and Colin Mason 
in the Natural Sciences. 

From last year's Leaving Class, 
Don Elliott, Vic Harris, Bill Plum- 
stead, Ed Nerby, Pete Edmonson, 
Jerry Pink, and myself have all en- 
rolled in the Business course here at 
Western. I think that we can all 
say it's a pretty great school. 

Guys before my time, on U.W.O's 
campus, are Walt Massey and Harry 
Kennedy who are surely well known 
here abouts. 

Well, I guess that about completes 
my list. Forgive my literary form 
as I seem to be suffering my usual 
brain fever.

FROM THE INFIRMARY NEWS BUREAU 



Dear Old Boy: 

This is being written in the new 
Memorial Wing .... on November 
11th. Remembrance Day. 

After almost two months of show- 
ing literally hundreds of people 
through we pass on to you the warm 
and enthusiastic approval of all vis- 
itors. Planned thoughtfully by all 
those interested; designed by KEN 
CAMERON of Mathers and Halden- 
by; furnished with care and consid- 
eration and the help of DUNCAN 
CHISHOLM of Eaton's Contract De- 
partment; blinds etc. by GORDON 
SO PER; it is a sort of family affair. 

Dr. Sowby's enthusiasm was evi- 
dent at all times. Dr. McTavish 



(Honorary Old Boy!) was never too 
busy to stop and consider the enor- 
mous number of questions the build- 
ing of a hospital entails. Miss K. 
Wilson, Lady Superintendent, busy 
with the planning and detail of the 
new Day Boy Dining Room (lower 
floor of the new wing) was unfail- 
ingly helpful in the immense task of 
choosing furniture, curtains, etc. . . 
Mr. Ken Scott lent his benevolent 
(and frugal!) presence to many 
meetings and always said "yes" or 
"NO" in the right places. MR. 
CLIFF BEATTY as Chairman of the 
Building Committee, paid us 8 a.m. 
and 6 p.m. visits of inspection, most 
welcome to us, and unsettling to la- 



(37) 



bour!! Kidding aside, our carpen- 
ters, painters, electricians and plum- 
bers were a very nice gang. 

The Infirmary Staff (you should 
see Kathie running up and down a 
wee step ladder to reach some of her 
lovely new cupboards in the kitchen) 
appreciate with their whole hearts 
the privilege of working and living 
in such surroundings, AND last but 
by no means least (without 'em we'd 
not NEED a Memorial Wing) the 
present boy is delighted and enjoy- 
ing fully, the space, comfort, and 
sunshine of the new wing. 

John Riley and his staff have done 
a wonderful job of converting the 
Old Isolation Hospital into quarters 
for two married masters; the old 
Day Boy Dining Room now houses 
the Stores Department, the Officers' 
Mess, Sargents' Mess and Orderly 
Room, AND the old Stores area has 
four new rooms being blissfully (and 
messily) decorated by the four Day 
Boy Houses. (Gone, the fire hazard 
of the Tower!) 

Nothing like a Memorial Wing to 
keep one alert. One morning at 7.50 
a.m. Brig. General Haldenby was in- 
specting walls, and at 11 p.m. the 
Head was conducting tours from a 
Parents Meeting!!! 

We have responded meekly to such 
irate enquiries as "WHAT? aren't 
you painted yet?" "WHAT DO YOU 
MEAN you are cold? you were warm 
enough when we were there this 
morning." "Barrow, are YOU still 
hearing things?" "How are your 
pumps?" Etc., etc., etc.!!! 

Since the Wing opened the most 
interested (and interesting) groups 
of Old Boys have wandered in and 
out. The Board of Governors .... 



MR. R. LAIDLAW, MR. MAIT MAC- 
INTOSH, MR. CLIFF BEATTY, MR. 
GERALD ORMSBY, and of course 
GENERAL MATTHEWS ... not to 
mention the Re-union Dinner of 
1902, 1916, 1917, 1937 (we gazed at 
the dinner jackets and wished we 
could have claimed "we knew you 
when!") strolled through all the 
rooms, and, as groups looked at the 
Rogues' Gallery, we hoped that we 
had put the toothpaste away! 

This summer saw a number of our 
Korean Vets home. 

MAJOR R. D. MEDLAND, D.S.O., 
arrived in July, had his leave, and 
returned to duty at Petawawa. His 
most recent address is Serial 159, 
C.J.A.T.C. Rivers, Man. Dick's gift 
of two new radios to the Memorial 
Wing is a thoughtful, generous one. 

LT. TED PEPLER, R.C.H.A., came 
home in June, looking very well, 
much older and owning a noble mous- 
tache. At the moment he is near 
Winnipeg. 

CPT. P. L. WIEGAND, US 51070- 
986, returned from Japan and was 
discharged at the end of October. He 
came up to Toronto for a week-end. 
His plans are uncertain at the mo- 
ment. He claims that what he wrote 
in the Old Boys' Book is presentable 
Japanese? 

Fred WIEGAND is at McGill this 
year. 

JEFF WIEGAND was Hudson's 
Bay Company Transport Agent at 
Tuk Tuk (Arctic). NO similarity to 
Tuck shop U.C.C., Wiegand reports. 
He returned home by ship around 
Alaska to Vancouver, thence to Am- 
herst Coll. U.S.A. 

JOHN WIEGAND is O/C J. Wie- 
gand RA 12392642 19th. OC.Co. 1st.

OC Regt., Fort Benning, Georgia, 

U.S.A THAT . . . covers the 

Wiegands. 

LT. "BUTTS" CAMPBELL, 3rd 
R.22 R, is on a course at Borden. 

LT. M. E. WASTENEYS, R.C.N., 
Shearwater, Dart., N.S., again flew 
in the navy demonstration at the Ex- 
hibition this fall. 

F/O ALAN WILSON, 32008 413 
(F) Sqn. R.C.A.F. Station, Bagots- 
ville, Que., was flying Sabres at the 
National Air Show and the Ex. in 
September. In view of the few chosen 
to fly in those events, it is an honour, 
if one can ignore the hazards, to 
think U.C.C. has two Old Boys there. 

NORTH HOGARTH is the only 
Varsity Blue Rugby player we ever 
heard of that played an intercollegi- 
ate game without ever having been 
out with the Team. North turned out 
with the Intermediates on a Monday, 
scrimmaged with the Inter. Team 
AGAINST the Blues Wednesday and 
Thursday, and played FOR the Blues 
Saturday. Masterson's Football? 
Nice going North! He remained 
with the Blues whenever conscious!! 

DOUG SPARKS works for R. A. 
Daly & Co. and was one of many Old 
Boys to turn up for a most pleasant 
Old Boys' Rugby Game. We are told 
it was fun to play; the Infirmary 
actually enjoyed watching it. BILLY 
HEWITT coached the Team and 
SKEFF GREENE again was man- 
ager. 

RICHARD WILLEMSON is an- 
other U.C.C. at Amherst. He is in 
3rd. year Economics. 

Greg LEISHMAN received a spe- 
cially nice hand for his Herbert Ma- 
son Medal on Prize Day, as did Bob 



Standing, who has returned for an- 
other year. 

HENRY BEST is a frequent and 
pleasant visitor. He is in first year 
Pre-Med at U. of T., and tried very 
hard to get a game of soccer with 
our colourful, undefeated for a sec- 
ond year, first Soccer Team and the 
Varsity Intermediates, for whom he 
played; alas, no mutually possible 
date. 

"WOODY" MACLAREN enters his 
3rd. year Commerce at U.B.C. He 
was C/O Royal Canadian Infantry 
Corp. Camp Borden, Ont. this sum- 
mer and came up to U.C.C. 

VIC HARRIS, DON ELLIOTT, ED 
NERBY, PETE EDMONSON, BILL 
LEAK, BOB MORRIS, and BILL 
PLUMSTEAD are all at Western U. 
in Business Administration. Some 
one ought to warn business in about 
three years when THAT group grad- 
uates. 

A. K. MACDONALD is with Im- 
perial Oil ... it is nice to see him 
at so many U.C.C. events. 

JIM GOODWIN spent the summer 
at an R.C.A.F. Station at Toronto. 
He enters his 2nd. year Meds. U. of T. 
this fall. 

ALAN POWELL is in Chemistry 
at McGill, and ED BURGER from 
Lorain, Ohio, is in 3rd. year Pre- 
Meds. at McGill. 

JOHN MORDEN, Trinity College, 
U. of T. RICH KINDERSLEY, En- 
gineering and Business, ALEX Mc- 
BAIN, Mining Geology, and JOHN 
MALLETT, Trinity, U. of T., all have 
been in to say "Hi". 

The DAWSON BROTHERS .... 
W. F. at Queen's University, and R. 
still at Balliol College, England, were 
at U.C.C. this spring. Both well.

JOHN ADDISON, 4th. year V. of 
T., is again out with the Varsity- 
Blues Hockey Team. 

BUDDY WHITE, graduate of R. 
M.C., now in Engineering at U. of T., 
was married in September. DAVE 
HARGRAFT was one of the ushers. 
Both Buddy and Dave have been out 
with the Blue Hockey Team. 

BILL LECKIE is now working for 
FOSTER HEWITT'S Radio Station. 

DAVID GOODYEAR gave us an 
eye witness account of the Don Jail 
just after the Boyd gang escaped. He 
was along as a technician when C. 
K. F. H. covered it. 

LT. L. S. O'BRIAN, HQ. 27th, Can. 
Inf. Bde. G.P. CAPO 5050, % Post- 
master, Montreal, Quebec. "O'B" 
paid Toronto a flying visit about 
September 11th. and was en route 
back to Hanover, Germany, in 24 
hours. Army orders, no reflection 
on Toronto. 

C. JEFF McCOMBE has turned in- 
to a statistician with Doherty, Road- 
house and Co. 

KEN DEAN, GEO. SIMPSON, 
TOM PARKINSON, PETER HAR- 
VIE, TERRY OSBOURNE and 
CHARLES COWAN (now a Capt. 
with the Q.O.R.) are in 3rd. year, 
Osgoode. Looks like lots of lawyers ! ! 

F. STEWART LARGE is still at 
the Hotchkiss School, Lakeville, 
Conn. U.S.A. 

WARREN JOSLIN wrote from 
Stanstead College, Stanstead, Que- 
bec, and BARRY RODGERS wrote 
from Manitoba University, both mis- 
sing U.C.C. and wishing every one 
here good luck in their many ways. 

F/L DAVID F. C. ROSS spent a 
morning at U.C.C. Now with the 
R.A.F. he is stationed at Langley 



Field, Virginia, U.S.A. A war guest 
in 1940, he brought his wife to meet 
us, and see the school. 

FREDDIE HADDEN'S phone call 
a week or so ago gave us great plea- 
sure. "Barrow, we have a son!" 
Here's wishing "Little Freddie" all 
the best. 

DON FARNCOMB announced his 
son is a definite prospect for football 
at U.C.C. 

DAVID JUDD, JOHN SPROAT, 
PAUL McTAGGART, JIM GOOD- 
FELLOW, D. E. MARTIN, BOB 
SHAW, JIM GARROW, GEO. 
HOUSE, are all in search of further 
learning (can't name it!) at Mc- 
Master University. 

R. WALKDEN, this year with the 
Board of Education, Child Guidance 
Centre, is struggling with the prob- 
lems of Toronto's younger genera- 
tion. 

DOUG DENNY is interning at 
Kingston General Hospital this year. 
He and GORD DENNY came in this 
fall. 

DR. C. ROSS came and took care 
of U.C.C. for a Rugby game this fall 
when Dr. McTavish was unable to 
come. Very nice to have him. 

JIMMIE GOAD'S wedding was a 
happy affair bringing out the 1940 
vintage of Old Boys, the ROSS bro- 
thers, ANDY WEDD, DR. WILSON, 
HOLDROYD P., SHIRRIFF D., ORR 
J., and many others. 

MR. HAROLD ROBERTS waves 
from the end of the corridor and 
appears conducting visitors through 
the New Wing. He has been wonder- 
fully good in his interest in the 
building. 

SAM HUGHES with Mills Spence 
& Co. Ltd., tells us PETE BAWDEN

to Chicago with Trans Canada Air 
Lines; Phone RA6-4004; Chicago!! 

Once again health and happiness 
to you for Christmas, if you have not 
had a moment, do plan on coming 
to see us during the Christmas holi- 



days. Believe me, we have not let 
all this grandeur go to our heads (or 
your stomachs) ; just to keep it all 
homey, we STILL boil up the coffee 
nonchalantly all day long, and serve 
milk and biscuits at odd hours. 

We do thank you for the new Me- 
morial Wing, and we like to think 
that those whose memory it honours, 
approve of the activity within its 
walls. 

Always, 
"Barrow"
